There's a great New Yorker cartoon of a dog typing at a computer with the explanation, "On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog". I'd like to add they don't know if you're a puppy or older dog either.
I participate in online communities: foreign movies, travel, cairn terrier (pic) owners, etc. ... and discussion doesn't include my age. My daughter is joining Facebook group "my Saab smells like crayons" (community with Saab detail in common). Crayon smell when I drove it too.
Associations often immediately draw generational lines when discussing social media, online communities, emerging technologies ... when age isn't limiting detail online. We need open-approach to communities, and not try to put puppies in one box, and older dogs in another.
